Formerly a technical writer, William has always aspired of one day becoming an automotive journalist. Fed up of occupying jobs that no longer stimulated him, he opened up a blog and started writing about his passion: cars. Over time, his blog, Clavey’s Corner, grew and became recognized across the country by important people in the industry. Over a period of two years, William Clavey has driven over 100 different cars.

He then started writing for Jalopnik, a controversial American car website, where he became known internationally for his humoristic and censor-free writing style. William is now a freelancer who collaborates to a wide variety of Canadian and American media outlets. Fluently bilingual in both English and French, he also actively collaborates to Québecois media outlets and has an active presence on Radio-Canada (CBC Radio).
